Nortel’s Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions (CVAS) unit is still at the top of the carrier VoIP market despite its parent’s ongoing troubles, according to new research from Dell’Oro, Infonetics and Synergy.

In separate reports, analysts said Nortel held its global leadership position during calendar Q3 in both carrier VoIP and softswitching in a market that declined 7% year-on-year.

According to Dell’Oro figures, Nortel managed to grow its own VoIP revenues in the by 4% over the same period, and its softswitch sales were up 7%.

“The carrier IP market continues to be highly dynamic, as service providers transition their legacy voice networks to VoIP to provide new services and cut costs,” said Infonetics directing analyst Diane Myers.

Nortel CVAS president Samih Elhage said the results were a reflection of confidence in the battered firm.

“It reflects our ongoing commitment to improve service providers’ ability to increase revenues and reduce network costs,” he said.

Nortel claims to have shipped over 118 million carrier VoIP and multimedia ports, including over 10 million SIP lines to both wireline and wireless customers, and has also signed over 40 carrier VoIP customers since January.
